What God did for Others, He’ll do for You! That’s My God!
As a Christian life can really get discouraging especially since we know all things are possible for those who love the Lord. But it seems no matter what we try, we’re stuck. When you’re up against what seems like an unattainable situation (“impossible opportunity”) that’s when we need to be encouraged with the 7700 promises in God’s Word. When we do our part, He’ll do His. That’s My God!

Here’s an example from current life:
At a recent soccer practice, a big older boy approached our 5-year-old grandson and took his ball away. He said, “I have your ball and I’m bigger than you, so what are you going to do about that?” Our grandson declared, “I’m not afraid of YOU, because I have God on the INSIDE of me and he’s bigger than ANYBODY. So what are you going to do about that?” The kid just gave him his ball back. (What he was effective because he really KNEW the GREATER ONE lives on the inside of Him. So He wasn’t afraid!)
So who are you trusting in? All these above and more were carried out for them. For me any my family – That’s My God!
